Christian Apologetics - The Sun
here are many debates about the Earth’s Sun. Many people debate the age of the Sun the size of the Sun and uniqueness of the Sun. Most of these debates are based on the beliefs of both Intelligent Design and evolution. Evolutionists believe that the universe is a natural accident; a freak occurrence in the cosmos that happened by almost impossible odds and Creationists believe that the universe was specifically designed by a higher intelligence based off the complexity of the universe. For this reason they cannot agree on the Sun. Lets do a little research on why:
Most of you know that the Sun is not a planet it is a star. Stars are (assumed) made from different kinds of gases like helium, hydrogen, nitrogen, etc. These gases burn and cause stars to produce their own light. Depending on what gas is dominantly presence in the star will affect the color of the light produced by that star (like yellow, red, white, etc.). Our Sun is considered a Yellow Star. Stars that produce yellow light are assumed to have a dominate amount of hydrogen compared to the other gases that they consist of.
Some of the apologetic debates:
Creationists believe that the Sun is proof that the universe was intelligently designed. Many Creationists do not just believe that the Sun is producing light but fire as well. Fire needs oxygen and fuel to stay lit but there is no oxygen in outer space. Evolutionists believe that one of the gases produced by the Sun is oxygen and therefore the Sun sustains its own flame and has been able to for “billions” of years. Many Creationists agree with part of this theory but deny the possibility that the Sun could have stayed a blaze for billions of years even while producing its own oxygen. Evolutionists cannot deny the fact that burning gases as a source of fuel will consume the gas rapidly and eventually run out. For this reason many evolutionists wait the day the Sun will die. Creationists believe that if the Sun had been around for billions of years it would have gone out a long long time ago based off the Sun’s anatomy and assumed amount of fuel and that is no reason why it hasn’t gone out now except for the presence of a stronger source of power (God). Many Creationists believe that the light that illuminates from the Sun is also proof of intelligent design. The colors that make up Sun light come together just right to make a powerfully strong form of Ultraviolet. These rays of ultraviolet are needed for life on earth. They help produce photosynthesis. Without the Sun life on Earth will decrease drastically if not completely cease to exist. Many creationists believe that this is evidence that Sun was designed for this purpose and the function it still operates to this day. Evolutionists believe that the universe was accidentally formed so they believe that the Sun was created by a freak occurrence based off “chance” (or in other words, “maybe it could happen”) and that life on Earth (which they believe is another freak occurrence in nature) happened to evolve after the Earth accidentally got stuckinthe Sun gravitational pull, and that life on Earth just evolved to depend on the Power of the Sun.
Whether you are a Creationists, Evolutionists, apologists, or counter apologists make sure you do your research on whatever you believe in and do not base everything you know on hearsay.
